The Happy Hour Episode 72: The OMG Fedor Lost Again show

It’s Fedor, Fedor, Strikeforce production values, Fedor, Shane Del Rosario, Fedor, Fedor, Arlovski, Fedor, and Fedor this episode. To wrap it up, Fedor, Gina Carano, and cake.

    good break-down on Ranallo. hyperbole’s only effective when you use it every-so-often, and not spewed out every other sentence. is it so hard to show off a believable personality once in a while? a heart-warming one perhaps, or one with GOOD insight. I know that isn’t his, nor goldberg’s, “role”, but for fuck’s sake, rogan, schiavello, even militich show some glimpse of a real man underneath a public persona; and people like that. at least i like that.

    the fedor-silva match, was another one in a recent string, where a lot of emotion was garnered. those kinds of fights don’t happen often. sometimes it is why the UFC seems so boring–it’s that lack of caring for their lackluster matchmaking at times.

    Even though strikeforce may have lost out on big fights, they come out as winners when they put on fights like the one tonight. the emotions — the rooting for favourites — keeps me coming back. lots of drama tonight, that’s for sure.

    Yet again Dumbo is talking out of his ass. Comparing Antonio Silva to Brock Lesnar is like comparing chalk to cheese. Silva is a fucking BJJ black belt and highly experienced fighter, Brock Lesnar is a steroid munching nobody with no experience.

    I’m sick of hearing this guys utterly stupid comments.

    Sheps, you’re a fucking idiot.  Brock has never tested positive for steroids (so Bigfoot’s got him there) and has a much, much more impressive resume than Bigfoot (wins over Mir, Carwin and Couture > splitting against Werdum and Arlovski).

    I don’t think size is really the main issue here. It helped Bigfoot but it wasn’t the main reason.

    Fedor’s sambo/boxing combo just isn’t cutting it anymore, and he was making a ton of mistakes. He threw punches wildly, was really sloppy on the ground. Also, the fight could have continued with another doctor, bigfoot was gassed and Fedor could have won. So it’s not that conclusive.

    I think Fedor is just tired of fighting.

    Also, I don’t think Brock could beat Fedor, if that’s what you’re trying to say. Bigfoot can take a punch and probably has better technical wrestling than Brock by this point.

    Anyway, kind of stupid to bring up Brock at all when there are other factors at play that need to be talked about.

  • 7th Offensive

    Also I’d say that Bigfoot beating Fedor means more than Cain beating Brock. Cain still needs to beat all the other UFC guys to establish a true hold on the HW division, and will still be compared to the winner of this tournament.

  • subo

    I assume Cain will be compared to a lot of fighters ranked beneath him while he’s injured.


    If you think Brock couldn’t take down Fedor as easily as Bigfoot did to begin the second, you’re delusional.  Maybe I should argue that Brock has better BJJ because when he went from mount to side control with a head and arm triangle, he finished it.

    Did you really just say that Kharitonov has a hell of a chin? The guy who was just knocked silly by Jaideep?

    props on the post event show, real nice not having to wait until damn near the middle of the week to get a weekend recap.

    Anyone else notice how Mauro has been sneaking in little snide comments at his fellow commentators?  Like when Shamrock repeated “Fedor can do what he wants,” Mauro was like, “This is a recording…”

    Makes me wonder if those guys ever turn off their mics, look at each other and go, “You know what?  Go fuck yourself.”

    I refuse to believe that Frank was smart enough to catch that.
